La Rivera - KWES YU’KIWE

KWES YU’KIWE, an indigenous reservation in the mountains of Valle del Cauca, holds a gift that brings hope to a community once assaulted by the constant violence of the conflict in Colombia. While each one of the 53 families who are part of the association ASOASIR grows a multitude of crops other than coffee, it is their coffee that has drawn international attention to their territory. Finca Bet-El, our newest partner in our coffee journey, is instrumental in painting a better future for their younger generations through coffee. With programs like lot separation, cupping, and barista training, Finca Bet-El has helped the children of traditional coffee producers see coffee differently and start a career in the industry.
